The New Joneses Road Trip - The Race is ON to save the planet.


Impact areas



  • DIRECTOR Tamara DiMattina

  • PRODUCER Tamara DiMattina



What do Hollywood actor, Yael Stone, cooking-champion, Nat’s What I Reckon + screen legend, Stephen Curry have to do with climate change? They’re on board THE NEW JONESES ROAD TRIP. The digi-doco series shows simple stuff we can do at home to be part of the solution.

When Nat’s heard Yael gave up her green card to lighten her carbon footprint, Nat wanted to know how to lighten his.
Yael suggests a road-trip.
Nat enlists Slatts Everyday (thrash-band, King Parrot) to take up the mission to meet the peeps doing good and share how we can all get onboard.

In the ten part mini-digital series (short to meet people's attention spans), Slatts hits the road in a 100% electric vehicle.
From Gippsland cattle-country, to 100% renewable-energy-powered Tassie, hipster Brunswick, to Broken Hill’s dusty-red outback, each episode introduces a new hero, a different part of Australia + a call to action for Nat’s ‘n’ Slatts.

All episodes of season #1 can be seen at

This summer (2022) Slatts is hitting the road again for season 2.
